Question about Husqvarna Designer I
When turned on my machine today, I got the message that it was tired. I pressed the ok button when prompted but continued to get same message. I turned it off and tried again but got same message. I've been using this machine for 5 years and have never seen this message. What should I do now?

It is either the motor that needs replacing or the power supply. I've seen both. There is an updated power supply that was recently recommended by Viking. These parts should still be covered by the Manufacturer Warranty (provided you are the original owner and purchased from an Authorized Viking Dealer). Take the machine to an Authorized Viking Dealer. If it is still warranty, you should only be charged for the service/labor for the repair. You can find a local dealer by checking the Viking website at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us and going to the Locate a Dealer link.
Good luck. I know how frustrating this can be.

SOURCE: Grinding sound
Yes, have the machine checked out. The noise is probably coming from the belt and is nothing more than an annoyance. Make sure that you inform your technician that it doesn't make the sound for several hours so that he/she will know how to properly test it.
Please take your machine to a qualified technician. A good cleaning can never hurt but a drop of oil in the wrong place may cause your machine to require major repairs. The shaft bearings in this machine require no lubrication and applying machine oil to these bearings may cause them to seize.

SOURCE: designer 1 embroidery problem
If the machine is reading the file to not be found it is probably that the designs are on the floppy but the person sending did not read them to the floppy right. they should have been read thru the softwear.

SOURCE: Designer One "broken thread"
If the upper thread spool is spinning allowing slack to the inlet of the tension assy and the machine gives a broken thread indication shortly afterward, the pre-tension assy needs to be adjusted. If the machine has the original "snap in" tension assy that was in the first generation of Designer 1, have it replaced with the modern "lay in" tension assy. Slack at the spool should never cause a broken thread indication as long at the thread is in the pre-tension assy.
Sulky thread will work as well in a Designer 1 as any other embroidery thread as long as it is properly adjusted.
One thing that you can look for, when the machine is sewing, watch the thread as it passes out of the left hand side of the tension disks. It should exit the disks at the 9 o'clock position. If it starts to drift up to the 10 or 11 position and then you get a broken thread warning, the pre tension must be increased.

I have loaded the 4D software and have communication with my Husquvarna machine through that. I communicate with my Pfaff through the old 3D software on my computer.

Make sure that the red disk (smaller than a floppy) on the underside of your embroidery unit has been removed. Remove and discard the red disk. It is used for shipping purposes only. Joyce
